How about 'wind' and 'rain' ... ?

That Hunter album Tiger Rose is a terrific piece of work. Am I the only one who prefers the original warbly vocals to the late-80's re-done version? I found a vinyl rip of the original version, but the record skips during 'Yellow Moon."

Nope, you're not the only one.

I prefer the original mixes on both "Rum Runners" and "Tiger Rose" to the later re-vamped versions. Also, I like to think that I'd prefer them if the releases came the other way round (get me - later versions first, original versions second). I like to think that I'd have said something like "Wow, these new versions are much better".

Was disappointed with the mix on the CDs when they came out compared to the mix (especially vocals) on the vinyl originals.

He re-did the vocals for the cd release ... I understand the impulse, but it was a bad idea.

fenario80: ..."wind" and "rain" are great examples; thanks a lot...

I agree regarding Hunter's LP's as well. Are you aware that "Lou Davenport" has the "JackO'Roses" album transcribed and available for download(?) ...check out the following post; it will direct you to the link for download:

Do you have any Hunter shows on DVD? Let me know.

Thanks for your response,

I have that rip, thank you. I grabbed it when he put up the link, or possibly someone else linked it more recently - what I would love to have is a rip of the original vinyl Tiger Rose, one that doesn't skip in the middle of Yellow Moon ...

I don't have any Hunter DVD's. I saw him a handful of times in the early 80's and it was always a good time, though one time in Boston he threatened us with "a short, lousy set" because no one had paid any attention to his opening act ...
